    42" Sony Wega LCD is about 3 years old. Starting shutting off by itself after about 30 minutes of play time. It will start up again by changing the channel on the remote and play again for about 30 more minutes.

    A little more detail would help; such as how long (approx.) before it shuts down, do you lose both audio and video?
    Try pulling the AC plug and letting it sit overnight with no power and then plugging it back in the next day.

The tv shuts off by itself. I will turn it on..and after awhile, it just turns off by itself, and then after about a minute I can turn it on again and watch tv for awhile, and then it will do it again.

It seems that your unit has some sort of PSU fault, or a problem that is shutting down the Power Supply Unit, PSU. This happens so that no further damage, and possible fire will occur. The faulty component(s) are heating up, tripping the fault control, and shutting down, it cools down again,and will restart, then the process repeats, it will eventually fail fully.
You need to take the unit to a reputable service centre/man and ask for a firm "Quote" for the work to be done. It is that sound that gives it away, this is a typical switchmode Power Supply problem.

My tv turns itself off while watching it after awhile

if it turns off and the timer light starts blinking you have a bad dm module, very expensive, it the light doesn't flash you have either bad front switches or something on the signal board, you can remove the speaker grill and disconnect both plugs and use your remote, this will disconnect the switches. if it still shuts off, you need baord repair, may be a bad solder connections, may be a chip/board needing replaced, you need a repairman and alot of money at that point.

New 42inch plasma turned off while watching, can't turn on

Panasonic requires an authorization number first from them. Our parts suppliers require that before we can even order the part. I recommend calling a svc co. to have it looked at, preferably an authorized panasonic service center, it will be much faster.

TV keeps turning off...

We have a Samsung HL-S6187W that's only a year and a half old that was having the same problem.... it would shut off for no reason... sometimes after being on for awhile but then sometimes it would shut off w/in a minute of it being on. Called Samsung support and they said to unplug and "reset" the T.V. and if that didn't happen they'd send a tech out (at a fairly steep service charge) and they would troubleshoot it. Talked to my audio/video guy that installed it all and he said it was probably the lamp that needed to be replaced (obviously for labor and parts charge). We really don't use the T.V. that much (have another flat screen 20' away in the kitchen we watch more often) so I seriously doubted it was the lamp.... plus it couldn't be turning off from over heating because sometimes it would turn off RIGHT after turning the set on.

After reading several suggestions here on Fixya I incorporated a few options to try and fix it myself and I am ecstatic to report that it's been over a month and a half, and we've watched it alot, and it's completely FIXED and doesn't turn off anymore --- and it didn't cost me a cent to fix!!! WOW!! Thanks to all the suggestions... this is a great website!!

Here's what I did:
1. Took off back lamp cover and vacuumed out the entire area (there wasn't ANY dust... but thought it couldn't hurt to clean it out anyway).
2. I disconnected the temperature sensor and cleaned off the contacts and plugged back in firmly.. (I think this is what the real solution was),
3. I then moved the "Auto Shut Off Switch" back and forth a little then made sure it was in the correct position when I replaced the lamp door cover (it's not hard to make sure it's positioned correctly).

Voila!! It's all fixed! This site has great pictures of the correct way to position the Auto Shut Off Switch and of the temp. sensor if you need it.
